the glass on the front headlights of the c70 is so ugly, i hate it how it has those ugly ridges on the glass. Anybody try to change this yet?.. I am sure it can be done. I am thinking of changing the headlight glass and getting a custom either eilliptical lights off a bmw installed in the housing of the c70 or audi projects. Both will run about $800.. anybody interested<BR>

Ah..CKCSaint...what brings you here. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> I'm glad you are here, too....you've are now the 21st active C70 member on Swedespeed. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>Yeah I was just talking to c70pusher(Phill) about that same topic just few mins ago. I mean if you can do it at a fairly good price and ABLE to get it made...count me in. I'm sure many other 70 series owners would be interested, too.

If it's a go and at a decent price, count me in. Projectors would look dope on our car. No angel eyes though. Although I think those are badass, I think those are way overplayed now. If possible get projectors of a new 745, those things light everything up!

I wonder if we change the glass, the headlight beam will get distorted. Meaning that the headlights will shine in peoples eyes, or not be as concetrated. Hrmmm<P>-Steve

Unless you have something like what the original one has....b/c I don't think the reflector in the housing was meant to work with completely clear lenses.<P>

Getting rid of these without compensating somewhere is lie shining a 1000W spot light in your eyes...it will hurt. The best solution is to get projectors made. For those interested, I found this...http://www7.plala.or.jp/soaristo/<BR>Q45 HID retro.
